Hello, I am Diana Athena Clarion, better known as The Lavender Lady.  You may or may not have seen me around the hallowed halls of YouTube.  If you have, you surely will remember, because I am the sort of person everybody wants to forget, but just can't.

So, Who is this Lavender Lady, Anyway?

Simply stated, I am an atheist lesbian transwoman, not necessarily in that order.  I gave up Roman Catholicism for Lent in 1977, and sort of forgot to go back.  In the years since then, I have been refining my Weltanschauung, to the point where I am ready to present it to anyone who cares to hear about it.  This is not to say that I have given up on the numinous.  To such as Oprah Winfrey, who may claim that atheists cannot experience "awe" and "wonder", I will tell you that I have peered into a dark sky to behold tens of thousands of stars, and was deeply humbled to know that I was an insignificant part of what I saw.

From a very young age, I knew that I was somehow "different", but didn't know that that difference had a name.  I can remember sitting at home, alone and crying, asking myself "Am I like Christine Jorgenson, and what do I do if I am?"  Well, it turned out that I was, and what I did about it was finally transition from male to female at the age of 52.  I am now a fierce advocate for LGBT rights.

Just What Does this Lavender Lady Do?

I examine the basis of belief, critique religious apologetics, and take a sledgehammer to religious discrimination against those of the LGBT community.  I also produce the occasional live stream.  My current video series are:

Vox Rationis, where I pick apart claims and attempted justifications of religionists, especially Catholic Answers.

A Day in the Life, where I offer a window into my largely boring life, to demonstrate that transfolk don't have three heads.

And my live shows are:

Coffee with Lavender, Sunday mornings at 10 Eastern, which is a general sort of musing, and

Sunday Stream, Sunday (who would have guessed) evenings at 8 Eastern, ehich explores a noteworthy topic, most often with a guest.

And Where Can I Find this Lavender Lady?

I'm pretty much everywhere.  Like a bad nickel, you just can't get rid of me.  The primary places to find me, however, are on my YouTube channel.
